There's no question about the location of Las Vegas Territory. Visit the website to see a big list of attractions, which include Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, the Las Vegas Strip, and much more.

  • #1 - Valley of Fire State Park. Valley of Fire is Nevada's first and largest state park. When you see the place, the red rock scenery will make your jaw drop. Even the sand is red. Valley of Fire also has some of Nevada's best preserved petroglyphs. It's an easy day trip from Las Vegas or you can stay over at the campground.
  • #2 - Colorado River - Laughlin. Laughlin is south of Las Vegas at the tip of Nevada. It is a resort town full of hotels, casinos, and other amenities you would expect. For a variety of outdoor activities, head to Big Bend of the Colorado State Recreation Area, just south of Laughlin.
